This versatile plane excels at trimming rebates and planing end grain. Of course, you can also use it as a normal block plane. Its Norris-style adjuster guarantees precise blade setting. Machined and surface ground, the 162 x 44mm body is ductile cast iron. It has a 12 bed angle and a movable toe fully enclosed by the body casting. A Bubinga knob locks the toe to control the mouth opening. A setscrew in the throat acts as a stop allowing exact repositioning of the toe. The blade sits flush with the plane’s side, so corners are clean and accurate. Setscrews on either side prevent the blade from shifting in use. An adjustable spur, ahead of the blade reduces tear out on cross grain. The blade’s 15 skew, makes cutting easier and helps pull the fence into the work.A brass knob and collet lock the 88mm long, 8mm thick hardwood fence. Tapped holes in the fence casting allow the fitting of a customised fence. The plane is available in left and right hand versions. It comes with an A2 lapped blade; 3.2mm thick, 38mm wide with a 25 bevel (optional O1 blades are available).Also available, an optional 88mm stainless steel fence rod (28mm longer than the 60mm rod supplied). This allows for a thicker fence extension (e.g., an angled fence for bevel cuts) without restricting cutting width.
